GIF It: Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker’s 360-degree knee-slide celebration
When your legs are as long as Per Mertesacker’s even very basic activities can become tricky.
The giant German tried to follow in the tracks of his Arsenal team-mates – led by goalscorer Laurent Koscielny – by sliding on his knees to celebrate their equaliser against Manchester City.
But for Mertesacker, a knee-slide is a bit like attempting downhill skiing with a kayak on each foot. He soon gets himself into a bit of a tangle and ends up doing a 360-degree spin on his knees before opting to crouch at the side of the huddle instead.
Thanks to Tony Kent for spotting this.
